Turn signal switch

After owning my 2012 for almost 6 months I really have only one issue that I can find fault with and that is the Turn signal switch. Mine is not as easy to push over as other bikes I have ridden and the horn button sticks out so far as to cause me to give a toot at times when canceling the signal.

Yup, done it myself a couple of times, the good news, if you have a stock horn, nobody hears it anyway! Cheers--BB

I did it today, but with my Stebel, it's a little more embarrassing.

Lmao! Yeah I've done it as well and thankfully have stopped. Took me a while and a few confused/borderline-angry drivers.

Wink signal switch

Do any of you find the lever for the signal to be less than smooth to push left or right compared to most other bikes? Kinda notchy I suppose would be the best description. Even my Norton is smoother to operate. :-)
